My will

 Hello ladies,  how are you doing? I would like you to read with me a paragraph from a comment I read last week:

"... In fact we should really put God's will first and foremost. I had an experience this year in which I did not do that, because I used my  faith to do my own will, and what I wanted to happen, even came to pass, because I used my faith,  but then I felt the bitter taste of receiving something that God did not approve of... " Yolanda

You know friends, sometimes we have a lot of faith to conquer what our hearts  desire.  We do campaigns, vows, we even fight with God for what we long for. But I ask you: Are you sure if what you want is the will of God? Have you ever stopped to ask yourself  if what you want is in line with what God wants for you? Do you even know what's good for you? What our friend Yolanda wrote is very true. What is the point in having the faith to conquer so many things if they are not God's will? What is the point in satisfying the desire of the heart, if this achievement will come with a bitter taste, simply because we did not know that we weren’t ready to receive it, or because it was just no good for us.

When Jesus taught us how to pray, He said: "Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven;” Matthew 6:10

And yet when He was about to die,  He left us a lesson: "Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done." Luke 22:42

The verse that sums up today's post: "Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God." Romans 8:26-27

There is nothing wrong with using your faith to achieve your goals. We do have to use our faith every day, whether to conquer our dreams, to preserve our salvation, to please God... but what I want to teach you today is what I learned and what I practice daily: EVERYTHING that you desire, or want to accomplish this year, ALWAYS PUT IN GOD'S HANDS so that, if it is GOD’S WILL then, it will be done!
Do not insist on what God has shown is not good for you, whether it is a job, a boyfriend that everyone told is not good for you, a friend who is a negative influence influences in your life, whatever it is, if God has shown you that something or someone is not good for you, do not insist, because the consequences will be bitter. Learn to trust in God, for only He knows what is best for you. Use your faith to achieve, what is God’s will, use your faith to conquer what God has prepared for you. Do not trust your heart, it will deceive you. Rely exclusively upon God and accomplish great things for the honor and glory of our Lord.
Dear Yolanda, thank you for sharing your experience.

A big kiss to all and see you next week. Kisses.

Thank you Yolanda for sharing with us.Our thoughts can never be like God's so if I want to conquer something that will make me happy eventually then I should rely on God's will not my will. Kisses

Thank you, Sometimes you may even use your faith and will receive because you used you faith and God cannot owe us anything, but then you are now left with making a decision as to say this is blessing I fought to have through your faith and on the other hand it may not be God's will, you need see which is priority, doing your own will or doing the will of God.

It is not every good thing we think is good for us, God knows what is good for us and what will be beneficial to us, we do not see as He sees.
As much as we can sacrifice, make vows and or purposes of faith. The most important and priority is that Obedience will always be better that sacrifice. Obeying the voice of God that speaks soft and calmly inside of you, as much as we can try to force to do our own will, it will not succeed, because God has something different for you and not what you think is right or good.

I realised this the hard way but I am happy now, certain and relieved because I am going in His direction and will all the way use my Faith in what He wants from me.

Let us listen to that voice that speaks inside of your mind, the one that does not go away, the one that makes you stop and think and reason, maybe at the beginning you may not understand, but that is not for you to try and understand with time it the Holy Spirit will reveal but for now just trust and believe and act and hope in Him. The greatest decision of your life.

They are times when we fight to conquer something, then our instincts tells us otherwise...we keep on fighting and after we conquer that thing, everything goes wrong, we then starts to blame God. The best thing to avoid bad outcomes is to present everything to God, and He will help us realize our will. After all he is a loving and caring God, He knows whats best for us. Thanks Mrs. Tania....i will present my plans to God, and let His "Will" be the one that' lead.
